Sculpture lego projects
Whilst this colourful hot air balloon looks pretty it certainly was no easy build, its crazy shape along with colour changes made it one of the more difficult things we have ever built.
(Combine that with the fact that it is designed to be hung from above!)
Last year saw us complete a 3m tall Yoda for May the 4th, this year we went a little bit further, a world record 4.6m tall Darth Vader!
One of my colleagues from the USA Dan Steininger came down under and together we managed to pull off the worlds largest LEGO darth vader.
Thanks to everyone who came out to help out we had a blast.
Sometimes, just sometimes we get to have some fun, this poor guy is simply called “Oh Noes!”
When we were contacted by Shell last year, we had no idea just how big a model can get, until we heard about a thing called the ‘Prelude”
At just over 483m long it is simply massive, its a floating Liquid natural gas refinery, extractor and storage facility all in one!
It will be stationed off the north west coast of Australia when it is finished and is a huge feat of engineering.
Here’s a couple of builds we have recently finished for the upcoming release of the LEGO movie.
The LEGO Movie logo is one of the biggest builds we have ever done, weighing in at a massive 360kgs!
It is 5x the size of the original logo used in the movie. As you can see the model had some very special challenges around building it!
The minifig Emmett and Lucy were also a lot of fun to build.
A fantastic new exhibition has just opened at the Perc Tucker Gallery in Townsville.
Featuring quite a few of my works as well as 53 historical items which have been sent directly from the LEGO Idea House in Billund, Denmark.
I’ll be onsite building some cool stuff from the 13th of December up until the 19th of December so come along and join in the fun.
I’ll be back again in Townsville in February so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for dates and times.
I’ve just finished making some super cool trophies which will be awarded to each state Chima Speedorz Champion.
These were a lot of fun to make, I look forward to seeing each of the winners!
With the release of the new LEGO Sydney Opera House, I have decided to offer its companion, the Sydney harbour Bridge as its own LEGO set.
This is a very rare opportunity for you to own one of my designs and also have an amazing part of Australia made out of LEGO.
All you need to do is click “support” and once it his 10,000 likes it is on its way!
Here’s the details:
LEGO has recently released its new CREATOR expert model, the world famous Sydney Opera House
However there is only one problem, it is missing its equally as famous and just as significant twin, the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
These two inseparable icons form the backdrop to one of the most famous harbours in the world.
So here is your chance to have the companion model.
Designed by Australia’s own LEGO Certified Professional; Ryan McNaught.
The Bridge brings new and interesting modelling techniques as well as an amazing looking model.
• Partner model of the new #10234 Sydney Opera house
• Each tower whilst looks the same uses a different construction technique, thus avoiding the dreaded x4 often seen in LEGO instructions.
• Includes Sydney ferries and a myriad of mini cars and trucks.
• Teaches important concepts such as making curved models out of rectangular bricks.
• Advanced Half stud offset technique used in all 4 towers.
• Measures over 90cm long, 30cm wide and 30cm high.

Here’s a bit of a behind the scenes look at my latest model.
A giant LEGO minfig called Laval from LEGo Legends of Chima.
He is just under 6 Ft Tall and with his sword its over 8 feet tall, and well over 100,000 LEGO Bricks!
Here’s a picture of him in the loading dock just before he heads off to a department store.
To give you an idea of just how big he is, on top of his left hand is a normal LEGO minifig (That tiny pink dot!)
All up he was about 280-300 hours worth of work, and a hell of a challenge.
I recently had the chance to take a trip over to New Zealand.
To say it is a beautiful country does not do it justice.
Whilst I was over there i managed to slot in a slot on breakfast TV, promoting the National LEGO building competition.
Here’s a link to the Interview, and here’s a close up of some flowers I gave to the shows hosts.
I was just playing around tonight and I made up a few picture frames. I have plenty of ideas for different ones, but these seemed like a little bit of fun. I did ask my darling wife if I thought they looked cute, the response was immediate: “LEGO is not cute!”. I think its clearly […]
